Yates Mill Elementary School follows a traditional calendar and is an enriching school community where the focus of the staff and administration is on setting high standards for student achievement. The staff collaborates to build safe and supportive relationships with the students, classrooms are interactive with technology and hands-on activities, and the students and teachers are actively involved in the learning process. The administration is actively involved in all aspects of the school community, visible, and supportive of students, teachers, and parents.

The staff collaborates weekly in Professional Learning Teams to design instruction and assessments covering the curriculum goals as outlined in Common Core and NC Essential Standards. Grade level teachers along with the AIG teacher, Intervention teachers, and Instructional Coaches are constantly assessing students' needs to better serve each child through the use of flexible grouping in math and reading called Team Time. Students participate in grade level Team Time 5 days a week where they work in small groups based on their specific needs. These opportunities for all students allow them to take part in uninterrupted core instruction daily as well as grow as learners in their specific, identified areas.

Through the PTA's Parent Advocacy Committee, parent and community volunteers provide tutoring, serve as media volunteers, support teachers in their classrooms and organize special activities throughout the school year.

Learning extends outside of the classroom walls by offering additional environmental education through six campus zones. The school having been built on the Swift Creek watershed provides unique, hands-on environmental instruction right on the school campus. At least twice a year, the school staff hosts Zone Days for students and their families where they work together to enhance and beautify the school campus.

All components together make Yates Mill Elementary a well-balanced school community.
